Who We Are
We are volunteers who love and are inspired by Amma, Mata Amritanandamayi. Amma is a saint from India who is known for unconditional love and humanitarian service. She hugs and blesses each person who comes to her in sessions lasting from 5 to 22 hours. In addition, she encourages us all to lovingly serve those in need. Amma calls all people her children. Thus she has taken us into her family.
We aim to show the same love and dedication that Amma has shown to us, to the best of our ability. We support these brothers and sisters in their own religious or spiritual tradition and in personal growth toward a better life.
